Forum: bookmobile Subject: You people are cool!!!

I had never heard of this internet bookmobile thing before today. I stumbled across this concept, and ended up here at this site. All of you who are doing this are very cool. It's a great idea!

I'd like to help. I'm not sure what I can do, but I'll let you know what tools I have, and we'll see what fits.

I have started, run, and funded a non-profit before. I started a company that built parks for kids in Los Angeles. If anyone needs advice on getting their 501[C]3 tax status, or on incorporating, or on (the BIG one) funding, please let me know. I was able to raise a about $450,000 in a little over a year.

I have a friend who sells mobile, satellite internet service. I'm pretty sure I could convince him to give a good price, but (since he's a re-seller) probably not free. It's a very cool service. You can access the internet (with FAST download speeds) from pretty much anywhere.

My mother is a library director in Minnessota. She runs a bookmobile. If anyone needs help from her, I'm sure she would be very much on board for this.

So anyway, and questions I can help with, please don't hesitate. I really hope I can help.
